As well as being delicious, reishi, shiitake and maitake mushrooms are antioxidant-rich adaptogens, which help to maintain energy levels, moods and sleep, and provide immune system support. Jeuneora’s new plant-based Beauty Sleep Adaptogenic Super Powder combines these with pistachio extract, which helps promote relaxation, healthy sleeping patterns and natural sleep. Enriched with Fairtrade certified organic cocoa, the nourishing drink can be frothed with milk or enjoyed over ice 30 minutes before bed.

Anyone who has attempted to apply liquid liner is well aware of how fraught the process can be, even for the most practiced make-up wearer. Aleph founder Emma Peters took this into consideration when she created the natural New Zealand brand’s new gel liner. Its smudge-resistant formula is applied with a thin brush, which gives excellent control and can be buffed on for subtle definition or used to create bold cat-eye flicks.
